I thought it rather convenient that Marlize has a magical cure for Harry. But I knew he'd get his intelligence back anyway. But what I didn't know was that he'd only get some of it back. \:\(

    1. So is Dibney really cleansed of Devoe and the other meta psyches? Eh, probably given the sloppy writing


Pretty sure the episode is clear enough to answer this question. I'm really surprised your asking it.

    2. Does Cecile still retain telepathy or is it all in the kid?


Again, the episode addressed this question. Cecile lost her telepathy with the birth of her baby.

    3. Nora time jumped back a few minutes so that she could team with Barry to smash the satellite, thus saving the city AND Barry as well. Nora then tells them she may have made a big mistake......


This will probably lead into the next season where they have to deal with the ramifications of what Nora did.


    Quote:
    C. She clearly did a time warp so that she could run alongside her dad and help smash the satellite. So this tells me that Barry likely would have perished otherwise, or been critically injured, either way this would likely mean Nora won't exist, so what she did saved Barry and her existence, but now how has the future changed?


Barry likely survived since Nora wouldn't exist otherwise. In all likelihood, Barry was severely hurt and went on to have Nora with Iris. But Nora saved Barry from suffering severe injuries, thus changing the future.

    And frankly after this season, does anyone care? I'm having a hard time caring at all.


The show runners themselves don't care if nothing makes sense. It's a miracle this show keeps trucking along without being cancelled.





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
